Releases are also provided as zip files at See for help with installing them.

Once installed you should be able to select the "TrackMap" panel when adding a new panel to a Grafana dashboard.

Building from source

To use an unreleased version of the plugin or do development, you will need to manually build it from source.

To build, install npm, check out the master branch (or the commit you want to build) and run the following commands in the plugin's directory:

npm install
npm run build

This will build the currently checked out source into the dist folder for Grafana to use.


The plugin requires latitude and longitude measurements provided as floats in two separate fields formatted by Grafana as a "Time series". The order of the data returned by the query is required (latitude, then longitude) since the labels and tag names are not used.

For example, the following query has been tested using InfluxDB as a data source in the case where the latitude and longitude series are stored in the location measurement:

SELECT median("latitude"), median("longitude") FROM "location" WHERE $timeFilter GROUP BY time($interval)

Because the plugin only cares about getting 2 series of data, it's also possible to use MySQL/MariaDB as a data source by using 2 queries like so:

A: SELECT "latitude" as value, $__time(timestamp) FROM "location" WHERE $__timeFilter(timestamp) ORDER BY timestamp ASC
B: SELECT "longitude" as value, $__time(timestamp) FROM "location" WHERE $__timeFilter(timestamp) ORDER BY timestamp ASC
